Michael Mundaca is co-director of the National Tax Department and the Americas Tax Center at Ernst & Young. Before that, Michael Mundaca served as the assistant secretary for tax policy at the U.S. Treasury Department.

The Treasury Department’s Office of Tax Policy develops and implements tax programs and policies and provides estimates for government receipts for the president’s fiscal policy decisions, budget, and U.S. Treasury cash management decisions. Also working at the international level, the office negotiates U.S. tax treaties and represents the country in meetings and in the efforts of multilateral organizations that handle tax policy matters, such as the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development.

The assistant treasury secretary for tax policy and his or her deputies get advice from, and oversee the activities of, those in Tax Policy’s Office of the International Tax Counsel, the Office of the Tax Legislative Counsel, the Office of Tax Analysis, and the Office of the Benefits Tax Counsel.
